J.J. WATT…

J.J. WATT…

Say it with me, in your best Mike Mahnke voice…J.J. WATT!!! It rolls off the tongue SO nicely…very similar to RON DAYNE!!! (skip to the 1:40 mark). In case you missed it last night, ESPN ran the E:60 piece Never Given about J.J. Watt. E:60 has turned into... read more
These guys are good…

These guys are good…

If you saw the commercials put together by the PGA Tour a couple of years back, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. Yesterday, Clara and I went to the Fry’s.com Open at Silverado CC (North Course) in Napa to be reminded (again) just how good... read more
Missing education…

Missing education…

After 13+ plus years of teaching, I came across two situations today that I never learned about back at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. One would think, having spent SIX YEARS of my life at UW-0, I would have learned everything there is to know about teaching.... read more
#unbielemable…

#unbielemable…

It’s no secret…I do not like Bert…I mean, Bret Bielema! My level of hate for this man is probably higher than I’ve ever had for one human being. So…just when you think you’ve seen it all from #unbielemable, he outdoes himself AGAIN!... read more
Aqua Stave…

Aqua Stave…

It’s just too easy to pick (ha…like that) on Joel Stave. It is literally amazing that he is a Division I quarterback (would he really start at UW-Whitewater?)…and how bad are the other quarterbacks on Wisconsin’s roster, if Stave is still the... read more
Field of dreams…

Field of dreams…

If you remember this post, you will remember my love for grass. In California, there is absolutely no such grass like that…unless you are at a very high end golf course or a professional sports organization’s stadium…and even they –... read more
Guys Weekend 12…

Guys Weekend 12…

Was a major SUCCESS (dare I say it was the best ever, but then again…I’m biased)! Thank you to all my friends and family for helping me pull off the greatest Wisconsin football weekend (plus golf!). This was the first time in my life that I was able to... read more
S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y…

S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y…

NIGHT! Camp Randall. Guys Weekend 12. The first night game since Utah State in 2012 (#unbielemable). I wish there was more on the line (really, Hawaii?)…like this memorable game versus #1 Ohio State in 2010…possibly the earliest we have ever been into a... read more
Pwned…

Pwned…

Over the last couple of days, I have taken a great liking to the following burns…let’s just say, some of the people involved…truly had it coming (you’ve been pwned)! 1. Texas Tech’s Kliff Kingsbury telling Bret Bielema what he really... read more
Traffic…

Traffic…

It should be a four-letter word in the state of California (or maybe it is). On some days, I feel like Michael Douglas in the movie Falling Down. I just don’t get it…there are FOUR to FIVE lanes on most freeways (in each direction), and yet people still... read more
When you say Wisconsin…

When you say Wisconsin…

You’ve said it all! I couldn’t agree with that statement more. Having now lived in California for the last couple of months, you realize what a truly special place Wisconsin really is (especially on a perfect Fall weekend). Clara and I just got back to... read more
The Valley…

The Valley…

Johnny Drama’s policy on going to The Valley (much less living there) is spot on! We live in the Tri Valley area and here is what we are currently experiencing temperature-wise (it’s September 9th, right?). This is day two of this triple-digit heat (oh,... read more
Teacher shortage…

Teacher shortage…

There is a shortage of teachers in California (multiple people sent me that acticle when it came out…and I saw many other articles just like it)…I can’t say I’m the least bit surprised after going through the credentialing process myself. Let... read more
Happy 1st day…

Happy 1st day…

Happy 1st Day of School to all of my friends back in Wisconsin (only 179 more days to go¡). Hopefully, you were able to accomplish everything you set out to do this summer and are recharged for another school year (remember…15th and 30th¡). I must admit, it sure... read more
10 years…

10 years…

It’s hard to believe that Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans 10 years ago already. New Orleans is one of my all-time favorite cities (there is just so much to like…I don’t even know where to begin). I’ve been fortunate enough to visit the Big... read more
I’m so done with…

I’m so done with…

Russell Wilson! D-O-N-E…DONE! I’ll admit…I was a huge fan of Wilson when he was calling the plays for the Wisconsin Badgers in 2011 (#unbielemable that they lost THREE games that year). But…ever since Wilson was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks... read more
Time flies…

Time flies…

When you’re having fun. We say it all the time. The adage held true again as Clara and I had our first visitors…my parents. While my parents stay was brief, we were able to accomplish a lot and hopefully they were able to see as much of our California life... read more
If you need me…

If you need me…

I’m in my office…I wish I could actually say that, but I’ll be too busy jumping through hoops today (and likely Monday…and Tuesday). Thankfully, my parents come to visit tomorrow (that should help take my mind off this nonsense for a bit).... read more
Checked off…

Checked off…

In my quest to attend a baseball game at every Major League ballpark, I was able to check another park off the list today. I went to O.co Coliseum (it’s been called so many different names through the years) to take in some afternoon baseball between the Oakland... read more
